Lyrics / Paroles

Doctor, my eyes have seen the years
And the slow parade of fears without crying
Now I want to understand

I have done all that I could
To see the evil and the good without hiding
You must help me if you can

Doctor, my eyes
Tell me what is wrong
Was I unwise to leave them open for so long

’cause I have wandered through this world
And as each moment has unfurled
I’ve been waiting to awaken from these dreams
People go just where there will
I never noticed them until
I got this feeling
That it’s later than it seems

Doctor, my eyes
Tell me what you see
I hear their cries
Just say if it’s too late for me

Jackson 5
Baby, Baby
Baby, Baby

Doctor, my eyes
Cannot see the sky

Is this the prize for having learned how not to cry

Jackson 5
Baby, Baby
Baby, Baby

Doctor my eyes
